Help is on the way

As I sat on my porch last night I was a food source for a number of mosquitos. This damselfly landed and made short work of one of them. Damselflies have aquatic larvae that eat small aquatic insects, including mosquitos.

Of course, most methods we have of killing mosquitos also kill damselflies.
